DraftKings and FanDuel discontinue college sports contests
Daily fantasy sports betting sites DraftKings and FanDuel have officially suspended all NCAA contests, according to a report published by ESPN last week.
NCAA basketball and football allegedly represent only 3 percent of FanDuel revenue.
It is a sound decision for the daily fantasy sites considering they have been the subject of legal scrutiny following their mass advertising during this past football season; removing a bullseye from the NCAA can only help their proliferation throughout the United States, where professional sports are their bread and butter.
Sportsbook Review reported on March 9 that Virginia gave a green light to daily fantasy sports betting. Most notably, Texas and New York are absolutely opposed to daily fantasy sports betting.
The mainstream appeal for daily fantasy sports betting is ultimately something that figures to help the growth of the legal sports betting movement. Sportsbook Review interviewed NJ State Senator Raymond Lesniak on New Jersey's fight to bring sports betting to their casinos.
